Showdown at Sundown 2005 will bring long-standing US punk band Unwritten Law, Aussie greats Radio Birdman, Canada's Crowned Kings, Hawaiian dub/reggae outfit Pepper and local newcomers The Common Code together on stage at Panthers Newcastle on Sunday, October 2. Organisers Big Apachee say this year's event is shaping up to be bigger and better than the last.

For the first time it will open its doors to punters of all ages.

Bands will perform across two rooms, with the Cow Folk Corral: Apprentice Stage designated as the all-ages area while the Saloon Bar will, as the name suggests, be licensed.
